Frodwine the Young by Red Box Games
Sculpted by Tre Manor
I painted this one in an effort to cross two or three lines together; 1800 trapper, Final Fantasy wizard and Nordic(in terms of the way Tre Manor sculpted it). I wanted to try some OSL on this one so I went with making his eyes glow. I was "o.k" with the way it turned out. The base is a metal base from a set I got in the Box-of-goodwill a few boxes ago. I'm on a NMM kick right now so no TMM on this one. Over all I am luke-warm with out this turned out. The matte varnish (Vallejo) kind of glossed up for some reason when I sealed it... You live and learn. Hope you like it.
Having grown tired of his parties getting decimated by dragons, Arathanel has decided to turn his coat.
His new boss spoke a single word and waved a claw and literally his coat changed.
Dragons Don't Share, but they do accept fealty.
Nathvarr was paint last year, over two weeks, as I was unhappy with where he was after a week and just kept working.
So, I repainted the dragon, and have the adventurers about 90% complete. Probably going to put flocking on the base of the ruins, and have been trying to decide if I want to repaint the stones... again.
Anyhow, here is Dragons Don't Share in progress (please forgive the crappy photo)
If I redo the stones, it will probably be in the theme of this:
After painting the dragon for the Paint Your Dragon Contest, I needed a "palette cleanser" before starting on the Jedi children minis for my grandkids' Christmas ornaments. They are even tinier than the dwarf so it was good for me to practice on a little mini again. Her eyes, especially her right one gave me fits. Other than that eye, I am pretty happy with her and she is just for play anyway.
I tried to really push my highlights on her. I think I am usually too conservative. This time, I may have overdone it but I like her and she was for practice so she'll stay this way most likely. I did a wash on her hair but it really knocked the highlights down so I re=highlighted.
Also, I realize once I saw the photos, she has a tiny bit of flock stuck to the front of her. I have tweezed that off but did not retake the photos as it didn't make that big of difference.
Any C&C is appreciated.
